Kobe Wins His Fifth Ring
Yes, I know this is not a photo from the finals. But then I would have had to show those green gomers from somewhere in New England. Apologies to the East Coast Posse, but TFA and I have been rooting for The Lakers since the lineup included Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, and Jerry West. And that means, like all Laker fans, we hate green.
Special hat tips to Ron Artest for the five steals, Sasha Vujacic for the clutch, last-second free throws, and Coach Jackson for trusting Sasha cold off the bench. But honestly, I think the green gomers would have won last night if Perkins had played. Without his size and presence, Gasol and Kobe killed the boards. 33 rebounds between them.
